Joe Biden is the current top pick for the Democrat nomination in 2020.
If he wins, he will challenge Trump in his battle for re-election.
And Trump is nervous after an unthinkable poll left Joe Biden jumping for joy.
It is Joe Biden’s dream to be President of the United States.
He has been in the running twice before only to fail spectacularly.
But this time things are different.
After eight years of serving as Barack Obama’s Vice President, Biden has the name recognition he needs to mount a serious campaign.
He is already dominating in the polls, having no other candidate even come close to him.
So if he is going to become President, 2020 is his year, especially with his age limiting him in time.
Unless things change, Biden is the likely candidate to take on Trump.
And in a General Election, current polling shows that Biden has a good chance against him.
In fact, Biden got jaw-dropping poll results out of the state of Texas.
A Quinnipiac University Poll shows that Biden is leading Trump by 4 points in the lone star state.
The polling shows him ahead with 48% of the vote, and Trump with 44%.
This is remarkably higher than any other candidate in the poll.
No other candidate can beat Trump according to the poll, which is giving Biden a lot of promise in a race against Trump.
Generally, Texas isn’t in play for Democrats.
But with polling like this, Democrats are likely to spend more time than usual trying to flip the state from red to blue.
Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke attempted to do just that in 2018 by running against Ted Cruz for Senate.
O’Rourke quickly became a major political player due to his insane fundraising ability.
But in the same poll, O’Rourke has nowhere near the support Biden has.
In fact, Trump performs better against O’Rourke than any other candidate, polling at 48% to O’Rourke’s 45%.
Quinnipiac sees these results as very promising for Biden.
“The numbers are good for Vice President Joseph Biden who dominates the field in a Democratic primary and has the best showing in a head-to-head match-up against President Donald Trump,” Quinnipiac’s assistant director, Peter A. Brown, said.
Republicans in Texas are also worried about the prospect of Biden winning in the state.
Republican Party of Texas chairman James Dickey told Breitbart News radio that he hopes Republicans don’t take the state for granted.
“Without our 38 electoral votes, no Republican candidate has a path to victory for the foreseeable future. That is why we are asking for the support of people around the country,” Dickey said.
He continued on to add that Texas is not as red as people seem to think.
“One of the things that we face as a challenge in Texas is people assume that Texas always has been and always will be red. That’s not true. It was only 16 years ago that Republicans even took the Texas House.”
